managing the side effects is as important as addressing the cancer
itself. According to doctors, side effects can compromise treatment
and even recovery. According to Dr.
Maria Luisa Abesamis-Tiambeng, M.D., head of the CSMC Cancer
Institute, M.D. “The psychological scars caused by the physical
manifestations of treatment, like rashes, skin discoloration,
blackened nails and falling hair erode patients’ self-esteem and
the will to fight. But psychological well-being is crucial to a
successful treatment. If cancer patients feel low and miserable,
their response to treatment is greatly affected. So if the side
effects of treatment do not bother the patient, their treatment
regimen becomes more tolerable, if not welcome. Products like Evolife
can help make patients commit to their treatment regimen and achieve
the ultimate cure. These innovative products can prove crucial in
licking the Big C.”
